Woolies ~ Sara

Woolies combines my passion for knitting and my love of animals. Still a child at heart, I delight in the magic and joy that small animals bring to us. The comfort and warmth that a lovey portrays....I still have a few of my stuffed animals from my childhood long ago. They are cherished possessions.

We have 11 animals currently on our little ranch - 2 horses, 1 wild pony, 4 dogs, 3 cats and a desert tortoise, many of them rescued animals....Read more

Autumn Tree Coloring Page

Although autumn brings with it an array of new colors... oranges, gold, browns and maroons... filling our landscape with a bold splash of color... often our skies are dreary and gray. Thank goodness for all the colors in our trees and bushes. You can use today's coloring page to try to reflect the realism of the season or let your imagination run wild and have a rainbow of colors. The choice is yours!

Here is our newest coloring page based on our Autumn Tree Applique Block. Children... or you... can use markers, crayons or paintings. The only requirement is to have fun :)

Pattern for Autumn Tree Coloring Page can be found HERE.

Autumn Tree Applique Block


One of the things I love so much about Folk Art is how it reduces things to their simplest forms... plus that extra dash of whimsy. Many of the projects on Wee Folk Art are in that style, including this very simplistic Autumn Tree Applique Block. Although using very simple shapes, this tree conveys the beauty of the season and reduces the complexity of nature to its simplest forms.  


As always, this applique was designed to fit on a 6" x 6" block but it can be enlarged or reduced to meet your need. Now that it's time to embrace autumn, we hope this little applique comes in handy!


The pattern for the Autumn Tree Applique Block can be found HERE.

Knit Rainbow Petal Skirt

This skirt is an easy pattern for beginning knitters to tackle. Each of the 7 petal sections are knit flat as individual pieces. When all the petal are complete they are whipped stitched together to form the skirt.

Sizes: XS (19.6in), S (22.4in), M (25.2in), L (28in)

Choose a size that is a couple inches larger than your child's waist measurement. You will add an elastic band to cinch up the waist to fit exactly.

Yarn: For this project I used Shine Worsted Weight Cotton from Knit Picks. I did each petal in a different color. You will make 7 petals.

For Pixie's skirt in child medium, I used every last inch of each skein. (Actually I was a bit short on two of the colors and had to bind off one row early - not that you can tell). You will need 1 skein per color for sizes XS and S. It is possible the M can use just 1 skein per color but just to be safe you might want 2 skeins for the M. You will need...Read more

Painted and Woven Stick Bouquet

Lately, there have been several stick crafts including painting sticks, weaving between and adorning with fiber and beads. My plan is to fill up this basket with an assortment of sticks. This project is far from done, but thought I'd share what I've done so far.

To begin with, I want these sticks for my new bedroom. I want the colors to match my bedroom area rug


the basket

and my house paint colors. The paint in these bowls are the paints from the walls of my house. I have used them, in part, to paint my first few sticks.

I began by pruning one of my witch hazel bushes. This bush it trying desperately to cover our shed so regular pruning is warranted :)

I cut...Read more
